A poor family is surprised with an infant on their doorstep on New Year’s Eve with a note and monetary support requesting them to raise the child. Eight years later, the child is stolen and the family is put into more trouble trying to find her. This is a story of how love and good morals are reward with a fairy tale “happily ever after” ending. (Summary by Sharon Kilmer)

Subject: Not a Typical Boy Hero Alger Story!
I am sad that after listening to Timothy Crump's Ward, there are no more Alger books for me to listen to! I hope Librivox will record more soon.

Timothy Crump's Ward does have a typical Alger teen boy as a main character, but an eight year old girl is the one that has most of the adventures.

I really enjoyed this story. As with all Alger books, the coincidences can be unrealistic, but through it all, good triumphs over evil. If you like turn of the century children's books, I think you'll enjoy it too!
